COILOVERS?
I live in chicago and i need help on lowering my car, and my car is gonna be a daily driver so when winter comes i need to put it at stock height. Should i buy coilovers then buy shocks. or buy the 1K coiloverkit. if i buy either one would it be the same effect because im on a budget also.

be on the safe side, go w/ TRD or Eibach Pro-kit springs. I got them and installing it this spring break! good luck man thumbsup

Don't recommend you getting coilover though, but it's your call grin


Life is like a dream...Hopefully when you wake up it isn't like mine.

why not coilovers? and i was also thinking about airbags, i knew there expensive but i like them a lot but are they worth it.

the airbag system would allow for easiest ride adjustment, but it will totally kill the sporty feel of the car i think,... the aibag system just doesnt dampen like the gas shocks do... if you really need adjustment to stock height for winter and such, then yes, coilovers are probably the wy to go. get shocks while your at it becase if you lower it more than 1" your stock ones won't hold up too long...

although if you only need stock height in winter, i'd consider uying a spring/strut combo for lowering, and just swapping out the shock assembly for winter...
